Miltown Malbay is located close to several nice beaches, but the most well known in the area are located a little out of town in the small village of Spanish Point.


Do[edit][add listing]

  • Spanish Point has recently been heavily overbuilt by hundreds of far-from-lovely concrete bungalows, caravan parks and food out-lets: close your eyes on the way to the very fine beach. Like Lahinch, there can be good Atlantic waves, and occasional surfing.

Access is by road (N67) from the North (via Lahinch) and the south (via Quilty)and there is a visitor information centre there.


  • The Willie Clancy Summer School was founded in memory of a local traditional music piper, Willie Clancy. It is held on the first weekend in July every year and goes on until the following weekend. It is worth bearing in mind if visiting Miltown Malbay during (and especially on the last weekend of) the festival week that due to the large numbers of visitors, parking is at times difficult and at other times impossible to find within the town.
